Edinburgh signed the Scotland youth cap Blair Kinghorn on a full professional two-year contract straight from Edinburgh Academy.
He made his professional debut, off the bench, in the 70th minute of Edinburgh round five 2015–16 Guinness PRO12 match against Zebre. For the last play of the game, a penalty attempt from inside Zebre's half, he was called on to take the kick, just slotting it short by inches.
Kinghorn was a National Youth League Cup winner with Currie at under-16 level and formerly a member of Heart of Midlothian’s Youth Academy.
He said: "When I was younger, football was my main interest, then I started to play rugby at school. Some of my mates went to play for Currie so I went along with them, then things escalated at under-16 level. I began playing for the school first XV and since then it’s been my goal to play professionally.
He then went on to earn his first international start, on the wing, in a 28-8 loss to Ireland. He scored Scotland's only try of the match. He played in all three matches during his first tour with Scotland - to the Americas in the summer of 2018 - scoring tries against the USA and Argentina.
Kinghorn was selected in the 31 man squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
